The Foundation


Established in 2001 to provide independent financial support for the School, the Foundation has raised over £10m. Thanks to contributions from alumni, parents, friends of the School, grant making bodies and charitable trusts it has helped the School to realise the following major projects and supported many other academic and sporting initiatives.

ROGER LUPTON SCHOLARSHIPS

The Foundation will continue to raise funds for the Roger Lupton Scholarships which provide a Sedbergh education to truly deserving youngsters. This scheme works in partnership with the Springboard Foundation which, through its links with local educational and community organisations, can identify disadvantaged youngsters who will benefit from and thrive on such an opportunity. Critically, these other organisations continue to support the pupil throughout and beyond their time at Sedbergh. For more information click here >>>


“These are exciting times at Sedbergh and it is thanks to the generosity of the donors that so many of the improvements to the school have been delivered. I hope the Sedbergh community will continue to support what we know to be the best boarding school in the north of England” 

(Jeremy Bedford (H 81-86): Foundation Chairman)

HOW TO SUPPORT

The Foundation is grateful for support for both specific Appeals as well as for ‘unrestricted’ donations which can be particularly valuable as they allow the Foundation to direct contributions to the area of greatest need at any one time.

Donations can be made via our secure online site as one off or regular monthly, quarterly or annual gifts. Gifts by cheque, credit card and BACS transfer can also be made by downloading a Donation Form. Other options include the donation of shares or other assets >>> and payroll giving. A gift to the Foundation can also be included in the text of a will or as a simple codicil. Many supporters have chosen this route and have become members of our growing 1525 Society.
